One of the most popular and in demand dog training programs in Santa Monica!
Wow! It’s been a long time! I remember the first service dog I was asked to train. I remember standing in front of a pet store, with my pop-up tent, talking to customers. One lady was standing in the back, and she finally got the courage to come up to me and ask if I trained service dogs. She had Multiple Sclerosis, and she was in need of a service dog that was trained to help her get through her days. At that time, I knew I could do it, but it was not my specialty. I decided to charge her what I would normally charge for basic obedience, and I added just a little on top for the extra time and work that I would put into the training.
I found the perfect dog at a local shelter, and I was off! I trained like never before. And, I ended up doing a great job with the dog. Delivery was a little tough, it was different than what I was used to. Nevertheless, the client was super happy and she bonded with the dog immediately. Obviously, there where some problems along the way, but we fixed them. And that was it… I was hooked and I was off doing what I loved. It’s been about 20 years since then, and I am still a very active service dog trainer serving the greater Orange County area.

Training service dogs for people with disabilities in Orange County is a serious job. People with disabilities need help, they do not need more unnecessary stress added to their lives. Therefore, it is important that the dog you are training for them has all of the drives and the character that is needed.
In all of the years that I have trained service dogs for people with disabilities in Orange County, the most difficult part is finding the right dog. We are very proud that all of the dogs we get are from shelters, rescues, or some type of rescue situation. We are always looking for dogs that fit our client’s needs, and we greatly enjoy saving their lives. Too many dogs are destroyed in shelters in Orange County that could be used for amazing work, just like service dogs!

Please be careful when researching and hiring your service dog trainer in Orange County. Things aren’t always what they seem. Some service dog trainers are excellent salesman, but not excellent service dog trainers. Orange County is full of people, which means it’s full of opportunity. Try and differentiate between people that are truly passionate about service dog training, and people that are trying to make as much money as they can by selling sub-par service dogs.
A few things to look for…
1) Really good service dog trainers only train a few dogs at a time. They know they need time to work with each service dog, and they cannot do that if they have a bunch of service dogs; it’s impossible.
2) A vast knowledge and years of experience training and selling service dogs. Many obedience trainers see dollar signs, but do not have the knowledge or experience to fully train a service dog. Therefore, be careful when you are interviewing service dog trainers, so that you do not get caught up in a situation that will be more stressful and disappointing than worth the time and money.
3) Willing to spend time with you on the phone. Although nobody wants to work for free, good service dog trainers will be willing to chat with you on the phone to gain your trust and help you understand their methodology of service dog training. If you are being rushed off of the phone, then run for the hills. Most service dog trainers that do this are simply trying to bully you into signing up and buying a service dog before you are completely ready and feel confident.
SERVICE DOG INFORMATION FROM WIKIPEDIA
Service animals are working animals that have been trained to perform tasks that assist disabled people. Service animals may also be referred to as assistance animals, assist animals, or helper animals depending on the country and the animal’s function.
Dogs are the most common service animals, assisting people in many different ways since at least 1927. Other animals such as horses are allowed per the ADA in the U.S. The service animal is not required by the Americans with Disabilities Act to wear a vest, ID tag or a specific harness.
In places of public accommodation in the United States, only dogs (and in some cases miniature horses) are legally considered service animals. It is legal in certain states to have service “animals”. For instance, in Montana all animals are allowed at state level. Many cats, birds, and even a wolf are working to help mitigate people’s disabilities in Montana. It is also legal to train your own service animal in the United States. There is a broader definition for assistance animals under the US Fair Housing Act as well as a broader definition for service animals under the US Air Carrier Access Act. In the United States, prior to a revision of the Americans with Disabilities Act going into effect March 15, 2011 types of animals other than service dogs and miniature horses were protected at least on the Federal level; individual states could expand coverage.
K-9 Behavior Services sells service dogs to individuals with disabilities throughout the United States, including Northern California, New York, Long Island, Arizona, Utah, Nashville, Texas, and more! Call today for more information 844-444-6677.
